2 garlic cloves

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoons Dijon mustard

3/4 cup, plus 3 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan, plus shaved Parmesan for serving

3 heads romaine hearts, sliced lengthwise in 1/2

Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  2. In a blender, combine the garlic, lemon juice and Dijon mustard. Drizzle in 3/4 cup olive oil to emulsify. Add the Parmesan and pulse.
  3. Gently toss the hearts of romaine in remaining olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill for 2 minutes, until grill marks appear and the romaine becomes wilted.
  4. Remove the lettuce to a cutting board and cut into 2-inch wide strips. Place in a bowl and drizzle with the dressing. Toss to coat and serve warm. Garnish with the shaved Parmesan.
